The Bishop Hill Heritage Association is pleased to announce the gift of $2,500 from Ameren Illinois. This generous donation will be used to repair the exterior of the 1851 Colony Carpenter Shop. Currently, this historic structure is the home to Garden Thyme and the Bishop Hill Post Office.  Photograph of this historic structure is below.
